" … and just to add insult to potential mortal injury, I’ll steal all his fangirls, because I’m absurdly handsome and he never looked as good as I did in my riot gear and scarf anyway, and he’ll never fill out a silver-grey suit ensemble like this." —the rest of Slade’s plan that got cut from the episode. There was also something about rocking an eyepatch like nobody’s business and having perfect hair. He was quite full of himself really. The writer’s decided it wasn’t essential because Slade has only to walk on-screen to prove the point.
Seriously. It’s really sad to think of their friendship being so utterly destroyed. WAAAHH! *bawls* I know it’s comic-canon to have Slade be evil, but I’m really hoping they give him more depth than just “RAR! I hate everyone, especially Oliver, so now I’m just going to destroy everybody and everything because I can and ‘PLBBBBT’ to the rest of you because I’m EEEEEVVILLLL NAO!” :( I will be so disappointed. I’d rather a more conflicted anti-hero approach, perhaps leave a window for him being redeemable, or, at least, being “nice” when he feels like it.
Lookit me. Already bemoaning whatever it is before anything has even happened, lol.
I can’t help it. Slade is so awesome and cool and he was such a good buddy to have on your side. Don’t make us like him so much only to have him become a monster.
I hate crap like that.
